For those of you in search of a luau/Hawaiian themed meal, look no further, I have a pineapple teriyaki pork taco meal just for you! This was something I experimented with earlier this year and it is now hands down one of the top three meals that I make. It’s also an extremely simple recipe, so head below to learn how to make some delicious pork tacos!
Ingredients & Necessary Items
- Pork Tenderloin (Teriyaki Flavored preferably, but you can also just soak a plain chunk of meat in your own teriyaki sauce)
- Taco Shells
- Shredded lettuce
- Other Optional Items: Sour Cream, Salsa, Additional Teriyaki Sauce, Hot Sauce, or whatever you may prefer to have on top of your tacos.
- Non-Food Items: Cutting Board, Sharp Knife, Non-stick Pan/Skillet or Griddle
- Remove the pork tenderloin from its packaging and place it on the cutting board
- Turn stove or griddle onto medium heat
- Begin dicing the pork into tiny chunks (think about the size of a quartered cherry tomato) or shredding if you have the ability too.
- Once the pork is diced, place in a pan or skillet to begin browning
- Begin dicing the pineapple up into similarly sized chunks as the pork
- Once the pork is almost finished cooking (10-20 minutes depending on your temperature), turn the heat to high, drop the pineapple into the pan, and add a spoonful of garlic to the pork
- Let both the pork and the pineapple crisp in the pan (5-10 minutes, completely your preference) and sprinkle in a touch of oregano as they do.
- Warm-up your shells (if you went with soft shell) and enjoy!
It’s as easy as that. I personally prefer my pineapple teriyaki pork tacos with a touch of shredded lettuce and a small amount of sour cream. The sour cream works wonders with the sweetness of the teriyaki and the lettuce adds an extra crunch to the taco. I also would recommend soft shell tacos here as it can become messy depending on how much extra teriyaki you may have added, but hard shells would still pair incredibly with this meal. These delicious tacos prepare in just about 30 minutes and I 10 out of 10 recommend you make them as soon as possible!
